L’anatomia geografica di Leonardo da Vinci (2020)

unapi

Leonardo's anatomical dissections were inspired by Ptolemy’s geography, considering the human body as a territory to be explored. The famous Vitruvian Man also resembles the arrangement of some medieval geographical maps. T-O mappae mundi including the Christ figure are reminiscent of the man in two superimposed positions inscribed in a circle and square, as depicted in Leonardo’s drawing. This relationship between anatomy and geography can be interpreted according to the ancient concept of the human body as a microcosm, to which Leonardo metaphorically adhered.
